The folks sitting in did so to send a message -- not just that coal is a
deadly threat to our rivers, streams, land and climate, but that both
Gov. Schweitzer and the coal industry should expect unwavering,
nonviolent resistance to their plans to strip mine the Powder River
Over the next week, we’re going to show them just how serious we are
about that promise of resistance. Dozens of people will follow behind
them over the coming days, risking our freedom to protect the
communities and unmatched beauty of Montana.
you’ve never been to an action like this, there’s nothing quite like
it. People can do amazing things by locking arms with their neighbors
and simply saying: “No.” Everyone who participated also joined a
training last night that made sure the action was as peaceful and well
coordinated as possible.
For those of us who have been do something like this before - well, you should already know the power of collective action.
Last, to everyone who is planning to join us (and folks who might be on
the fence): we can’t wait to see you. We’re in a beautiful fight to
save a beautiful place.
